Here's a compelling play about Jackie Robinson. Over my twenty years of using drama in the classroom, kids say this is one of their favorites to enact. This original script recounts the events surrounding Jackie's breaking of the color barrier through the narration of the Hot Dog Man and the Peanut Vendor at an "actual" ballgame today. (You can hear a podcast presentation of the play at ReadAloudPlays.com) Six pages, parts for from 7 to 13 actors, and suitable for reader's theater or stage performance. Historical photos and comprehension questions are embedded in the script, which was originally published in Scholastic's Storyworks magazine. Also includes an additional comprehension activity and teachers notes/key. Fully reproducible: the original purchaser is licensed to reproduce a classroom set every year. Also consider downloading Box Brown's Freedom Crate, Freedom for the First Time, or The Library Card, all available at ReadAloudPlays.com. Thanks!
